 is considered public anyway.)
+All of the functions to set a new certificate will replace any existing
+certificate of the same type that has already been set. Similarly all of the
+functions to set a new private key will replace any private key that has already
+been set. Applications should call L<SSL_CTX_check_private_key(3)> or
+L<SSL_check_private_key(3)> as appropriate after loading a new certificate and
+private key to confirm that the certificate and key match.
 On success, the functions return 1.
